The Jellyfish are in our school near the office. The Jellyfish feeders in our class are Leah and Brooke. They feed the jellies every Tuesday. There are three see through jellyfish in the tank. The tank glows different colors. The tank is white outside. Brooke and Leah work very hard to feed the jellyfish plankton.
We did a science experiment with Candy Canes. We put one candy cane in three different cups of water. One was salt water, one was hot water, and one was room temperature water. We all had to observe what happened at 1, 5, 15, and 30 minutes. We all wrote on a piece of paper to tell about what happened to the candy canes. The candy cane in the hot water dissolved really fast. We had to do some science with doing the candy canes. We felt excited and happy because we like to do science experiments.

Read Aloud Stories
Uncharted Waters is the book we read after P.E. or recess. We read Uncharted Waters as a story because we want it every day. It is written by Leslie Bulion. Sometimes we read other stories. We think Uncharted Waters is good so far. The book is about a boy named Jonah who is getting in trouble all of the time. He covers his lies with other lies. He meets an old man named Bert and tries to make money. Jaye is Jonah's sister. She is not telling Uncle Nate about Jonah's problems. We are studying the ocean and the book matches what we are studying.

We love to read together!
In Readers' Workshop, the kids in Room 17 stretch out words and look for punctuation. We do this so we can stop and sound the words out. Everyone gets different kinds of books. Some books are informational text and some are fictional. Fiction books have key events. Some times we do partner reading. Reading can help you learn new words. If you get stuck on a word, you can skip it and then go back. We sometimes work in book groups. In December, we read gingerbread books with our book groups. Books are good to read, they can teach you things.

people. In Brazil there is a sport with volleyball and football mixed together called foot volley. Soccer is a famous sport in Brazil. We learned about choreography and dance with Miss Kim. We are happy we learned about Brazil. We learned how to sing the birthday song like people do in Brazil. The Brazilians speak the Portuguese language. We learned that there used to be slaves in Brazil and slaves disguised martial arts as dance. Room 17 learned a lot in the book A-Z Brazil.
